"When your Southwest flight crew celebrate a plane full of kick-ass women and men going to the Women's March by lighting it up!" passenger Krystal Parrish wrote on Instagram.

"It was unexpected and unannounced," Jennifer Moran, who was also on the flight, told NBC.

Southwest turns on the pink lights and a loud cheer erupts. #WomensMarch

"There was no announcement explicitly from the staff and no one screamed, 'This is for the March,'" Moran told NBC. "Nothing, just spontaneous and everyone knew exactly why they were cheering."

A Southwest spokesperson told BuzzFeed News they were "unaware of details surrounding specific flights" but that they "celebrate, commemorate, acknowledge and share in special moments with our customers all the time."

Tons of flights have been asking for a show of hands to count how many marchers are aboard.

"Stay safe, stay hydrated, have a good time, look out for your fellow sisters," the flight attendant said. "And just remember we don't take no ish from no man."
